While services for medical and education are contracted for through private vendors, the facility's food service is supported by the Larned State Hospital. However staffing at LCMHF is contractual. Meals are prepared at the state hospital kitchen and transported to the LCMHF for serving to the Central Unit inmates. West Unit inmates eat their meals under LCMHF staff supervision at the state hospital cafeteria.
The facility provides opportunities for inmates to practice their respective religious faiths. A full-time chaplain is the liaison for religious services and volunteers in the community.
Reentry services provide programming, such as Thinking for a Change courses and support for offenders based on the inmate’s specific risk and need areas as defined by screening and offender behavior.
Inmate employee positions are available in non-prison based industries programs for minimum-custody West Unit inmates. These programs are designed to help inmates learn and practice the pro-social skills and good work habits required to be self-sufficient, productive citizens ready to practice responsible crime-free behavior.
